If your horse is sound on pavement and is not wearing down faster than it is growing then you can for sure ride on pavement barefoot.
Shod vs. not shod on pavement (which is what you asked I believe) of course the horse with out shoes will wear their feet some on the pavement where a shod horse will wear their shoes.
Some horses have rock hard feet and can do fine on pavement with our risk of wearing too much down. Others are not so lucky.
